DNS

is the foundation

of your Digital Business

DNS is the single most critical technology for any online business. Investing in DNS to ensure your online assets stay up and running and available to your customers around the clock

 

DNS handles all the directions on where to go when people want to visit your online business

Everyone that uses the internet relies on it and every online business has it.  DNS stands for Domain Name System and it translates domain names (example.com) to IP address(es) that run your website and other apps.  DNS is basically a glorified directory assistance for your internet presence and  without it, nobody can visit your site or any resource within your domain name.

For any size internet business, having your domain name and website up and running is about as critical as it gets, even more so if you sell online.     DNS isn’t cool or sexy, and honestly, it’s not really thought of that much, until it goes down

Without DNS, your online business is dead

Slow DNS can Kill your Business

 

Slow or Unresponsive DNS can kill your business

Let’s face it – people are growing ever more impatient and have a set of expectations that your website and apps will deliver your content both quickly and reliably.  Slow websites not only hurt your chances of converting visitors into clients, but it’s a well known fact that a slowdown of just 100ms can cause a drop of 1% or more in sales.   Slow or unresponsive sites & apps can also cause loyal customers to jump ship and head on over to the competition.  The CloudfloorDNS Anycast DNS Network is one of the fastest DNS networks on the planet and will ensure your DNS is optimized for the ultimate in speed and reliability

DNS is the foundation of your Digital Business

DNS is like the foundation of your house, without it, the house (your online business) crumbles

To help with understanding the technologies and how they relate to each other, we’ve created a graphic below that simplifies these technologies into an analogy we can all understand, a house.  Looking at the graphic below, we can see that your Domain Name (Example.com) would be the plot of land where you build your house.    You can’t have a house without a yard, and you can’t have DNS without a name to serve.  Now that you have your domain/land, you build your house, and it all starts with the foundation.  Build your house on a weak foundation, the house will eventually fall down when the foundation crumbles.   It’s the same with DNS – its the next most critical technology in the chain after your domain name is registered.

Once you have your domain name (Plot) and your DNS Provider (Foundation) selected, you can then start to invest in web servers, email, FTP services, API servers and more – Your internet House.   All of these services reside within your DNS  as part of your domain and are 100% reliant on these services to be operational.   For a deeper explanation of DNS we urge you to check out Wikipedia, or a fantastic book by OReilly books called DNS & BIND
